How to get started
Let’s say you want to make some changes towards a healthier eating lifestyle. Which should be your first steps?
I often get this question and this is what I use to respond:
Make sure your body isn’t dehydrated. Regularly (several times a day) check the color of your urine. If it’s yellow or darker you are dehydrated.
I start every day with a big glass of luke warm water with a squish of fresh lemon juice.
“The best water is stored in water-rich plants, so try to hydrate with living juices made from fresh fruits and vegetables like: apples, carrots, celery, cucumber, citrus fruits.” (Mike Adams/NaturalNews: Tip of the day)
Start the day with a green shake! I use Vitamineral Green or Greener Grasses (HealthForce) or Green Magma barley grass powder + some maca powder + Fruits of the Earth (HealthForce).
Symbolically this is also a way of saying: today I want to do good things to my body. Some might say using green powders is cheating, but I say that it’s smart to do something if you’re not eating enough fresh greens (which most people don’t).
I know that green powders work. Several friends have noticed radical changes after just a few weeks with green powders: lowered blood pressure, better sleep, getting rid of exzema, getting thicker hair, getting rid of dandruff, improved general wellbeing.
Eat lots of fresh organic greens and use the green powders on top.
Search information about healthy food of high quality and high nutrition. Buy or borrow books like “Superfoods – the food and medicine of the future” by David Wolfe or “Natural Health Solutions” by Mike Adams. Google “superfood” and you will have your hands full. Learning why and how is crucial. Nutrition is something very fundamental for living organisms, it’s not about magic or strange beliefs, and, not surprisingly, high quality nutrition will help you feel better than with bad quality nutrition.
When you search “superfood” you will find an array of natural products rich in nutrition, like: bee pollen, maca powder, camu camu berry, goji berries, cacao, spirulina, hempseed, coconuts, blue-green algae, acai, chlorella, curcumin, ginger, cinnamon etc. Next step is to try food with high quality nutrition and make it a natural part of your diet.
Avoid superbad food!
Processed and diluted food won’t give you the nutrition your body need to be strong and healthy. Avoid hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, white flower, white sugar, white salt. Avoid stupid bread. Cut down on dairy products like milk, cheese and youghurt. Avoid packaged meat that contain sodium nitrite, which you don’t want in your body.
